I am looking for tools to use with an upcoming project. The tasks include extended evaluation periods that can last up to five days.  There are multiple SPI buses to monitor with speeds that vary from 1-2 Mbps. Although the periods can be lengthy, the data transactions will not be continuous; I estimate the data log per session will be 50 GB or less. My questions:

Creating safe and quality-made cables requires various evaluations and testing before landing in the hands of the consumer. To be certified, cables must go through design validation and compliance testing. But even after cable designs are approved, it is important that cables be tested for quality and safety standards during production. Learn the different ways cables are approved and tested and why individual quality control testing is just as crucial in catching underlying cable issues that might otherwise be overlooked in production.

System Management Bus Protocol, also known as SMBus, is a two-wire protocol that supports basic communication functions, often within computer motherboards. Defined by Intel and Duracell in 1994, the standard has grown steadily in usage due to its functional benefits and compatibility with the existing I2C two-wire protocol. Today, the SMBus standard is maintained by technologists at the System Management Interface Forum, a forum for early adopters of communication protocols with a mission to support compatible technologies in power management.

I am working with Active Optical Cables (AOCs), and I am using the Beagle USB 5000 v2 SuperSpeed Protocol Analyzer - Ultimate Edition. I am having a problem diagnosing one of the USB 3.0 Standard-A to USB Micro-B cables with an industrial USB 3.0 vision camera (JAI GO-5000C-USB).  When I connect the camera directly to my PC with an AOC, it works without any issues. However, when I connect and use the Beagle USB 5000 v2 analyzer between the camera and the PC, the camera continuously restarts and never successfully connects.

Successful communication between devices is key to having a properly functioning embedded system. Embedded systems rely on and function using protocols, or a set of rules that govern the transmission, synchronization, and error checking of data sent and received between devices. Because the protocol is an essential component to a working embedded system, it is crucial that it operates properly. Because communication errors do occur, many protocols, including USB, CAN, and A2B, include error checking mechanisms such as a Cyclic Redundancy Check, or a CRC.
